WOW, when people were saying it would be loud, I didnt think it would be that loud... That would be just plain annoying sounds like the bearing is about the throw the fan right off

I'd like to hear that and the ATI equivalent instead of a tornado.

Consider it is sitting outside a case with the mic of the camera with in 3 feet. It's going to sound louder than actually is inside the case.

Yeh, Guru3d specifically pointed out that tests where the sound meter was right next to the card was unrealistic and didn't represent real life usage. They did a test with it inside a case, and got ~45dba IIRC.

I gave up about this card being silent once I saw that they were running Delta fans. :lol:
